I've become leery of setting goals with my animals. It seems we've been spending more time on plan B than anything. That being said, this is the time of year when I begin thinking about goals. So here's to Plan A!
I want to ride more. Even in winter, even when my horse is not in a warm cushy stable. Yup, I need to stop being so wussy. I want to ride bareback - which based on Bacardi's behavior the other day may be a poor decision. I'm looking forward to riding over winter break with Jason. I miss being around him and Chrissy. I miss being at the barn.
I will have Ryder ready to stretch out his drive and outrun come spring. He'll know his direction commands. I will do something, anything with Diva. I plan to take a tracking course come spring with them. Here's hoping one or the other (preferably Diva) likes it.
I will make it to the UK and work dogs at some point in the next 12 months.
